Proceedings


This year authors of abstracts accepted for presentation at ICANS XXII are invited to contribute a paper to the conference proceedings, which will be published in the open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), published by IOP Publishing. It will be a great opportunity to showcase the quality and range of research being presented at the conference as well as promote the event to a wider international audience.

The proceedings of ICANS XXII will appear in the Open Access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), which is part of IOP Conference Series. All papers published in IOP Conference Series are fully citable and upon publication will be free to download.
